elevator to HELL!!!!!!!!



i'm really surprised that no one's reviewed the birdland
show of last saturday night.  so let me take a stab in
just a few lines here.  EARTH A.D. opened the show.  they
are a completely cliche metal band from moncton.  and boy
they rock.  it was so much fun watching these guys, almost
as much fun as watching rick and mark watching them.
ROME PLOWS were *great*.  one of the best gigs i've seen
them do.  they are *so* much better now that they've
decided that they can be fun and loose on stage but still
rock out.  great new versions of a couple of their songs,
including the swing version of "garrulous".  just brilliant.
the jsbx comparisons keep coming to mind at certain moments.
ELEVATOR TO HELL were amazing too.  they aren't doing
"august 93" anymore which is cool because it means they
aren't afraid to *not* sound like eric's trip.  the new
trend, kidz -- dirge rock.  how such downer music can
be such an upper, i'll never figure out.
